Folding box with fully overlapping lid and bottom flaps

The folding box with flap closure is one of the most frequently used types of folding boxes. It is often used as printed packaging for food, medicine, cosmetics or technical accessories and many more. It is also popularly used as product or gift packaging such as confectionery or samples.

The folding box with fully overlapping flaps fulfils several functions at the same time just like labels. It protects its contents from external influences such as water, dust, light or from being scratched. This type of folding box is an ideal product packaging and can be safely stacked or stored on shelves to save space. The folding box with flap closure also provides plenty of space to place information and advertising.

The folding box with fully overlapping flaps for lid and base consists of only one body and is glued on the long side with the glue flap at points. The special feature of the folding box is the full overlap of the base and lid flaps, so that it is securely closed. The top and bottom of the box are not sealed by machine until the box is filled.

One advantage of this type of carton is that it cannot be tampered with when the carton is strapped. The fully overlapping lid and base construction thus provides theft protection and prevents small parts from falling out. The double material thickness of the bottom and lid flaps gives the box additional stability.
